Call for Artists
Through SDSU Extension's Healthy Food, Healthy Families, Healthy Communities program, a Lakota Homes Wellness Coalition has been formed to serve North Rapid City residents. As part of our work in Lakota Homes, we have partnered with the Ignite After School/Summer Program at the Oyate Center. Ignite serves youth from K-6th grade. Through SDSU Extension's AmeriCorps program, we are doing a Gardening project with the youth. We are interested in a local artist giving us some ideas on how to "artify" the garden! We would love to create some art out of recycled materials and would like some help in creating a sign for the garden. We would also love to incorporate Lakota culture into the art.
If interested, please contact Prairey Walkling, Community Development Field Specialist, at 394-1722 or email@example.com

All proceeds from the event benefit Suzie Cappa Art Center and Rapid City Arts Council.

Storytelling is the conveying of events in words and images. Stories have been shared in every culture as a means of entertainment, education, cultural preservation, and instilling moral values since the beginning of time. Through the magic of language and the storyteller's skill, stories can come to life with landscapes and costumes as colorful and complex as the creative listener devises.
Do you have an epic story you’d like to share? Share your story with a live audience while an artist captures the moment visually.
The purpose of the artist is to give tangible form to feelings, refresh our
vision and help the listener see the story in new ways. Artists will capture a particular moment, emotion or scene from the story that resonates with them.
Want to challenge yourself artistically and help someone visualize their story? All mediums accepted, we encourage you to be creative!
